Halo |OT14| They call it Halo

Looks like you can bug out the "in one match" challenges pretty easily, no idea how consistent it is. After a match, if it zeroes out and doesn't bug out on itself already, dashboard out and start the game up again. Dashboarded out to fix my NAT, came back in, and had half of the weekly done already.
 
If you have any of the following words/letters in your gamertag, I automatically think negatively of you:

- Any variation of the word "snipe", including SnIpE, SnipE, Sn1pe, Sn1p3, etc.
- Anything consisting of multiple x's before or after your gamertag, i.e. xXx -- XxX
- Anything involving a lowercase "i" before a noun or verb, i.e. iQuickscope
- Anything involving alternating capital letters (exception to this rule: CyReN)
- Anything including the words "MLG"
- Anything referring to weed and other illegal drugs
- Including the numbers "69" or "420"
- Including the words "YOLO", "swag", or "pwn"

Think that covers the basis.
Some of my previous gamertags were:
iRhino, iTz RhiNo, X iTz RhiNo X, iShutdown, MLG Rhino 2k8.

I love you Enfinit.

I was playing Coop legendary campaign for the first time last night. Got through the first two levels.

The animation in this game is fantastic. You don't really (or I didn't) take any notice while playing singleplayer, but watching another player do the 'actions' is great. Even watching the cyro tube open at the start of the game is pretty badass. Encounters seem to be a lot more fun (though that might've just been because I was in a party)

Co-op and higher difficulties do bring out the fun in campaign. Its weaker for solo than other Halos, at least as I see it.
 
It's weaker in co-op too. I was just stuck dying in every single 'chase' segment. At least they let you man turrets on the uber-pelican.
Yeah, this is true. Doing that Ghost run in 4 player co-op was hilariously stupid, especially since after dying the game might spawn you facing the wrong way which will probably get you killed even after you turn around.

Only problem with the Pelican is you really can't hit anything if the pilot is aiming based on the angle of the auxiliary guns. The Phantoms cluster together, there's not extreme approaches like in New Alexandria. Prolly one of the reasons it was a bit disappointing.

If someone's in the pilot seat and you jump onto the back landing struts, however, you can get launching pretty far. We had a lot of fun glitching with the Pelican and trying to launch people to the far cruiser on a FUD co-op night.

Yup. I had a blast watching my bro play those bits while I spawned and died. The same happened with the later flying segment.

The game didn't feel particularly suited for 2 player runs.
 
Hey HaloGAF, just got validated a few days ago so I'm just going to fill out this survey.

How long have you been a member of NeoGAF? How long have you lurked?
Got validated 3 days ago, but just activated yesterday. Hard to say how long I've lurked, if I had to log my combined hours I would say a few days worth.

How old are you? What country or state are you posting from? (Optional)
I'm 20 years old and live in Canada.

How long have you been a Halo fan? Have you played all the games?
I've been a Halo fan ever since Halo 3, so I haven't had the chance to play all of the games. The only one I haven't played yet is Halo 2 and Halo Wars (if that counts).

What mode do you spend most of your time in?
Probably campaign, but I wouldn't be surprised if my hours in multiplayer are greater than that.

What is your favorite playlist?
Good old fashioned Team Slayer.

Help us get to know you better. (Optional)
As much as I like Halo, I found that Halo 4 felt a little lacking compared to Halo Reach or even Halo 3 for that matter. As for games that are not Halo, I generally like anything as long as it's fun, interesting, and original.

Welcome, brother. Do yourself a favour and play them as soon as you can possibly manage.
 
How long have you been a member of NeoGAF? How long have you lurked?
I've lurked since late 2008/early 2009, and I applied for membership on July 20, 2012

How old are you? What country or state are you posting from?
I am 18, I am from Texas, although, I'd love to live in Washington (I gotta thing for the trees)

How long have you been a Halo fan? Have you played all the games?
I've been a fan since I could remember. My cousin Alex bought the original Xbox when I was 6 and I've played Halo ever since. Yes, I've touched all of teh Haloz!!1!!one!1!!

What mode do you spend most of your time in?
(i.e. Multiplayer, Campaign, Forge, Firefight, Theater)
Multiplayer is what I've spent 99% of my time in but I'm definitely a lore guy. I dig Halo for its expansive universe.

What is your favorite playlist?
(i.e. MLG, Action Sack)
well, here's a list: Halo CE-Slayer; Halo 2-CTF, Slayer; Halo 3-Slayer,SWAT, FFA, CTF; Reach-who cares; Halo 4-Slayer, Regicide, CTF (I guess) and SWAT.

I come from the Halo.Bungie.Org community and I also spend much time at the Bnet. I am a loyal Bungie fan and a loyal Halo fan. I come from a hick town, in which, I do not fit in. I am going to be going to Texas State, San Marcos to major in Theatre and to later on become a film director. All in all, I think I'm a pretty chill guy to sit down and play Halo with, I play other stuff too, so if you're interested, hit me up and we'll see what you got goin'!
EDIT: Oh yeah, and Elzar and I are in love... Do not deny me this.

I wonder how many HaloGAFfers are actually BungieGAFfers. Welcome.
 
If you have any of the following words/letters in your gamertag, I automatically think negatively of you:

- Any variation of the word "snipe", including SnIpE, SnipE, Sn1pe, Sn1p3, etc.
- Anything consisting of multiple x's before or after your gamertag, i.e. xXx -- XxX
- Anything involving a lowercase "i" before a noun or verb, i.e. iQuickscope
- Anything involving alternating capital letters (exception to this rule: CyReN)
- Anything including the words "MLG"
- Anything referring to weed and other illegal drugs
- Including the numbers "69" or "420"
- Including the words "YOLO", "swag", or "pwn"

Think that covers the basis.
So basically 79% of Xbox Live Users?

This is about my criteria as well. I'd like to switch my tag again to something without numbers. Just been down and out since MS decided BlueScrote was offensive.

Did you make the 8-bit Halo theme remix for one of 343's podcasts?

I thought you were about being inclusive?
